End of an era - Mario Lemieux retires... again

According to numerous sources, Mario Lemieux will announce his retirement from the NHL this afternoon at a press conference.

It is mildly surprising, considering that he had been working out with the team of late, and all reports were that he was going to play again soon. However, when you're dealing with issues around your irregular heartbeat, it just isn't worth the risk. Supposedly, the medication he's taking causes him to become fatigued.

Personally, I'm just glad I had the chance to see him play. He's one of the best.
